Welcome aboard for our exploration of the Victorian City

In the second half of the nineteenth centuries cities grew at a rapid rate throughout the westernized world. Whether "first cities" like London, Paris, Berlin, and New York, or "second cities" like Glasgow, Hamburg and Philadelphia, or "third cities" like Middlesbrough and Wilkes-Barre, the Victorian city was a place full of people and excitement. This course will consider what these various cities shared and what made each unique in transnational approach to urban studies.
